DVD Playhouse December 2010

By

Allen Gardner

America Lost And Found: The Bbs Story (Criterion) Perhaps the best DVD box set released this year, this ultimate cinefile stocking stuffer offered up by Criterion, the Rolls-Royce of home video labels, features seven seminal works from the late ‘60s-early ‘70s that were brought to life by cutting edge producers Bert Schneider, Steve Blauner and director/producer Bob Rafelson, the principals of Bbs Productions. In chronological order: Head (1968) star the Monkees, the manufactured (by Rafelson, et al), American answer to the Beatles who, like it or not, did make an impact on popular culture, particularly in this utterly surreal piece of cinematic anarchy (co-written by Jack Nicholson, who has a cameo), which was largely dismissed upon its initial release, but is now regarded as a counterculture classic. Easy Rider (1969) is arguably regarded as the seminal ‘60s picture, about two hippie drug dealers (director Dennis Hopper »

[DVD Review] Cher: The Film Collection

2 December 2010 8:15 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Longevity seems to be the operative word when it comes to Cher. In her 46 year show business career, she’s had many ups and downs but she always manages to somehow remain relevant. She began as one half of the singing act Caesar and Cleo (who later changed the name of the act to Sonny and Cher) in 1964. Today, she is an Oscar-winning film star and has a new movie with Christina Aguilera in theaters.

Born Cherilyn Lapiere, she became an icon of the 1960s, along with her then-husband Sonny Bono, when their music and outlandish garb caught the spirit of the “flower power” generation. The duo starred in the Emmy-winning The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour in the 1970s and the light-hearted film Good Times (1967). Cher used her increasing popularity to record a pair of number one solo hit songs, “Half Breed” and “Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves”.

Exclusive Audio: 45 Minutes With Oscar Contender Justin Timberlake

30 November 2010 12:51 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Click Here To Listen To Our Conversation!

Justin Timberlake is the guy who virtually every girl wants and virtually every guy wants to be — he’s smart, he’s sexy, he’s charming, he’s funny, and, most impressively, he’s super-talented at a wide variety of things. Timberlake is a six-time Grammy-winning singer (you first heard him as the lead singer of the immensely popular ’90s boy band ’N Sync and subsequently as a charts-topping solo artist); a two-time Emmy-winning TV comedian (both for unforgettable guest appearances on “Saturday Night Live”); and, in January, might well add yet another impressive credential to that resume: Academy Award-nominated actor.

Timberlake has given standout performances in a number of films in the past — among them “Alpha Dog” (2006), “Black Snake Moan” (2006), and “Southland Tales” (2006) — but he has earned the best reviews of his career, by far, for his performance in this year’s »

Can 'Burlesque' seduce awards voters?

24 November 2010 10:01 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

After a seven-year absence, Cher returns to the silver screen this week in "Burlesque," joined by pop songstress Christina Aguilera in her film debut. The razzle-dazzle musical, which boasts plenty of original songs, sequins and spotlights, divided reviewers resulting in a score of just 51 at MetaCritic. One can sense Razzie voters sharpening their knives. But did anyone really expect the critical establishment -- dominated by stodgy straight guys -- to dare to admit they might enjoy a movie toplined by Cher in all of her scenery-guzzling glory? This kind of cinematic bonbon could be just the antidote a recession-weary moviegoing public needs right now. As for its awards pedigree, Cher snagged the Best Actress Oscar in 1987 for "Moonstruck," preceded four years earlier by a Supporting Actress bid for "Silkwood." However, musical turns such as in "Burlesque" rarely earn attention from Oscar (an exception being those "Chicago" »

Part II:  The Producers Take Back The Reins

By the late 1970s, the tremendous creative license the major studios under a new generation of production chiefs had granted the young tyros of the 1960s – Coppola, Scorsese, et al – had expired as each managed to deliver at least one, major, back-breaking flop.  For Scorsese, it had been the grim musical New York, New York (1977, $13.8 million U.S. vs. a budget of $14 million); Peter Bogdanovich turned out a streak of losers including period piece Daisy Miller (1974), comedy Nickelodeon (1976), and another disastrous musical, At Long Last Love (1975, $1.5 million U.S./$6 million cost); after the back-to-back hits of The French Connection and The Exorcist, William Friedkin delivered Sorcerer (1977, $6 million U.S. against a crushing $22 million cost); and Francis Coppola, after a string of commercial and/or critical home runs including The Godfather (1972), The Conversation (1974), The Godfather Part II (1974), and Apocalypse Now (1979), turned out One from the Heart »

Cher: The Film Collection DVD (Good Times/Chastity/Silkwood/Moonstruck/Mermaids/Tea With Mussolini)

20 November 2010 10:39 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

DVD Review

With the upcoming release of Burlesque, Cher’s first starring role in 11 years, MGM is releasing a box set featuring six of Cher’s films on DVD.

Good Times

Directed by: William Friedkin

Cast: Sonny Bono, Cher, George Sanders

Running Time: 1 hr 30 min

Rating: Nr

Due Out: November 2, 2010

Plot: Sonny and Cher are asked to make a movie!  The rest of the film loosely follows the couple as they imagine various scenarios for their movie.

Who’S It For? Do you like Sonny and Cher?  Especially Sonny?  Because he’s the real star of this venture.

Movie:

The film follows the variety show format used on Sonny and Cher’s show, though it doesn’t really work for a movie.  They want to recreate the fun of Help! but as people, they’re just not that engaging.  Or more accurately, Sonny isn’t. But that isn’t the only problem, »

Links With Benefits

Journalistic Skepticism Oooh, it's a must read listen. Luke has collected the film scores this year. Which is your favorite and who do you think is winning the Oscar for Best Score?

Cinema Blend smart post about confusingly similar 2011 romantic comedies Friends With Benefits and No Strings Attached. One twin thing that isn't mentioned: Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman, the female leads from the respective movies are sexually entanged together in Black Swan.

Towleroad A bit about Spielberg's Lincoln. Plus, my continued Harry Potter agnosticism . I don't even wanna see this one. Five hours to tell that book? And I've heard that they do spend lots of time moping in that tent. Argh. I don't even dislike the movies really (except the first two) but 9 years is more than enough for one series. Wrap that damn thing up already!

Austin Translation has some fun advice for future Disneyland travellers.

Cher Goes Gaga For Lady Gaga

17 November 2010 6:26 PM, PST | Fox All Access | See recent Fox All Access news »

Cher is, arguably, one of the greatest performers of all time. Let’s face it, she has done it all…music, with her former husband, Sonny Bono, then as a solo artist. Then came the hit variety TV show, followed by a successful turn in movies. Her road to super stardom has culminated in a vat of awards from the Grammys to the Academy Awards (winning Best Actress for her role in “Moonstruck”). Over the course of her career she earned her the term ‘Diva’…in the nicest of ways, that is.

  In the last 40 years, plenty of female performers have tried to earn the title of diva and failed. However Lady Gaga has come mighty close. Gaga, like Cher, has dominated the music world – and done her share of shocking audiences with her colorful attire (a la what Cher).   Fox All Acess.com caught up wit Cher and asked »

Cher wants more movie roles

17 November 2010 8:00 AM, PST | Virgin Media - Movies | See recent Virgin Media - Movies news »

Cher wants to quit music for films. The legendary singer - who won an Oscar for her performance in 'Moonstruck' in the late 1980s - wants more movie work when she wraps up her Las Vegas show in February 2011 because of the fun she had on new project 'Burlesque'. She said: ''There's the opportunity to go on a tour, and yet I'm not so sure that that's something I want to do immediately because I've been working for a long time. ''I did like working on this film so much that I really would like to do another film. I'm never .. »

“Top Chef: Just Desserts” Recap:a Cake-tastrophe Brings on the Blues

11 November 2010 11:23 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Today I’m singing the blues. Usually I have such fun watching this show that I can’t wait to run to my keyboard and dish about it with you.

But last night was just … ugh. Uninspired challenges, some particularly ugly trash-talking, and a depressing elimination all combined to put me in such a funk that I can barely face up to recapping it.

I’d console myself with chocolate, but that would only remind me even more of this episode, so what’s the point?

It’s a sign of just how sorry an episode we’re in for that they can’t even drum up the gratuitous Yigit beefcake shots we’ve grown accustomed to. Sure, they try, opening up the episode with the sight of Yigit shaving. But he uses an electric shaver, and we all know what a dry shave means … no need to take the shirt off. »

Cher Eyes Directing Debut

10 November 2010 8:11 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Cher is ready to step behind the camera to direct her first movie after five successful decades in showbusiness.

The Believe hitmaker has enjoyed a stellar career in both music and film, releasing a string of platinum-selling albums and picking up a Best Actress Academy Award and a Golden Globe for her acclaimed role in 1987's Moonstruck.

Cher will make her big screen return in musical extravaganza Burlesque later this month and she has revealed her next big challenge will be directing.

She tells Access Hollywood, “Well, I’d like to see more films. I wanna direct a film."

As well as concentrating on moviemaking, the superstar is eager to spend more time on philanthropy, adding, “I have a school in Africa and I also feed the children there." »

Great Moments in Cher: 5 High Points You Won't Find on Her New DVD Set

5 November 2010 4:00 PM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

As arbitrary here's-a-bunch-of-movies-this-studio-owns-on-dvd box sets go, The Cher Collection (Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment) at least provides something of a career retrospective of the star's film presence from kitschy hippie (Good Times, Chastity) to Serious Actress (Silkwood, Moonstruck) to marquee diva (Mermaids, Tea with Mussolini). But one box set can barely cover the extraordinary breadth of Cher's contributions to pop culture - hell, not even the medium of cinema can begin to do justice to the many corners of the zeitgeist where she's had an impact. So in honor of this new DVD set, here's a list of some our favorite, other Great Moments in Cher: »

The 50 Oldest Living Oscar Nominees

23 October 2010 12:31 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Happy birthday to Best Actress winner Joan Fontaine (Suspicion, 1941), also known as the second Mrs. DeWinter. She turns 93 years young today. What on earth was she thinking about when she won the Oscar. This photo to your left fascinates me on account of "who knows?" It seems so much more candid than many Oscar night photos.

I keep the following "still with us!" list, not from any morbid curiousity but from a genuine happiness that some legendary screen stars are still walking the earth even though most of them aren't walking the screens these days. This year has been rough with the losses so maybe I'm going to stop keep this list. My heart was in the right place!  We want the following to know that their past accomplishments are acknowledged by new generations.

Thank You Santa! "Cher: The FIlm Collection" Will Be Here For The Holidays!

28 September 2010 8:24 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Cher!

Did you feel it?

Cher!

Did you feel the tingling?

It's a little known fact that the word causes a biological reaction in the gay brain, resulting in a tingling sensation, followed by an involuntary "Squee!," culminating in what's scientifically referred to as a Chergasm.

Well get ready for an all-out Cherplosion (I promise that's my last Cher pun) with the November 2nd release of "Cher: The Film Collection."

The box set contains six Cher films: Good Times, Chastity, Silkwood, Moonstruck, Mermaids and Tea With Mussolini.

Wait a minute. What?

I agree that Silkwood, Moonstruck, Mermaids, and the underrated Tea are must-haves, but those first two movies should have stayed in the time capsule, especially when there are so many other classic Cher films to pick from. I realize that they may not have had the "rights" or whatever to include them, but that's not going to stop my hackles from raising. »

Hollywood's late bloomers

26 August 2010 3:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood may be obsessed with youth and speed, but just occasionally age and wisdom win out. Joe Queenan on the late bloomers who make a good case for biding one's time

Early next year, Annette Bening will garner an Oscar nomination for her tart, intense performance as Julianne Moore's control-freak lover in The Kids Are All Right. She could just as easily be nominated for her tart, intense performance as a neurotic middle-aged healthcare professional in the underrated film Mother and Child, another engaging arthouse release that surfaced a few months ago. In effect, after more than a decade of working infrequently, and even then mostly appearing in duds (Being Julia, The Women, Running with Scissors ) Annette Bening is making a serious comeback at the age of 52, 20 years after most leading ladies have arrived at the expiration date for their careers.

First Trailer for Burlesque Starring Christina Aguilera, Cher, Kristin Bell, and Cam Gigandet

4 August 2010 10:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Due to the limited film experience of Christina Aguilera and her booming voice, Burlesque faces the brand of skepticism that comes with anchoring your movie with a musician. Writer/director Steve Antin did what he could to surround Aguilera with a seasoned cast, including Cher, who made the leap from song to screen herself with an Oscar win for 1987’s MoonstruckKristen Bell, Cam Gigandet, Eric Dane, and Stanley Tucci round out the cast — check out the first trailer for Burlesque after the jump.

Burlesque hits theaters on November 24th.  Here’s the official synopsis:

Aguilera’s Ali runs away from Iowa in search of fame and ends up waitressing at The Burlesque Lounge on the Sunset Strip. That is until Kristen Bell’s headliner, Nikki, shows up tipsy one night and Ali must fill in.  Ali helps turn what once was a lip-sync club into a singing-and-dancing revue after »

Watch This: Nicolas Cage Suffers From Promotion Sickness

29 July 2010 6:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

At this point, I'm convinced that Nicolas Cage is just screwing with us.

Cage was once known for roles in critically acclaimed movies like Moonstruck, Wild at Heart, Raising Arizona, and Leaving Las Vegas. Now, his career is a bizarre mix of family films like G-Force and The Sorcerer's Apprentice, cheesy Bruckheimer affairs like the National Treasure series, and action films like Ghost Rider and the upcoming Drive Angry (filmed in 3D!). His performance in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call: New Orleans was hilarious and awe-inspiring in only the way a movie peppered with lucky crack pipes, hallucinated iguanas, and a brief Pov that I'll call Alligator-Cam can be.

Nic Cage's interviews have gotten equally off the wall, in the kind of way where I'd really like to just get a few drinks with him and let him go off while I record it. Actually, I don't even »
